in the discretionary category to the defense spending. i simply say unless they have to come to the realization that unless we can address our mandatory spending, which is running away with the budget and ever shrinking ability to make decisions about how we as discretionary spending, and left to get control of that, everybody will fall short of what they want. so i'm not debating whether more money should go into medical research versus building bridges for infrastructure or whatever. i'm simply saying all of that is squeezed and therefore asking you to support your senator or senators or representatives in giving them the back don't encourage to stand up and say we have to address this for everybody loses. and that is the message of the day and now we have no election over that issue. for having a debate in congress every day over that issue. to this point, the president has not indicated postelection that he thought that it used about addressing the mandatory spending issue. and we can't get there until he dies dies because without his leadership the matter what congress called both together

. whether it be offensive or defensive, we are generally defensive in the sense that operating domestically and the investigative authority within the united states. we would be helpless if we did not work with dhs, cia, nsa, and the rest of the intelligence community. if there is one substantial change that has made the biggest difference, i would say breaking down the traditional walls between the intelligence community and the domestic law enforcement community because information flows very easily over borders now, and you cannot just see one piece of the puzzle without getting the other piece. it has made a tremendous difference and given rise to the approach from all of us that says we want to work together in a task force context. >> for our radio listeners, you are listening to the commonwealth club of california radio program. our guest today is fbi director robert muller discussing security threats concerning the united states. we would like to ask you a little bit about the national security implications of our energy policy, an issue of much concern in the news and certainly her

like swooden and norway. you could say your defense budget and aid budget, add those together, that's your international engagement. because we have by far the world's biggest defense budget and we have the biggest international engagement budget. the europeans choose to balance their international engagement into vaccines and aids drugs and things like that. so they're less about-- they're more about getting people lifted up so they can be self-sufficient. >> rose: you get a lecture last week yesterday-- >> yes, yes. >> endowed by some journalists at the bbc, and what's interesting about it to me is you sailed three things. three convictions. the first was-- your work had given you three convictions. one-- i want you to elaborate on this-- when had gone improves life improves because disease and bad help insinuates itself into every aspect of your life. >> that's right. . in our country, kids have such a healthy life that they go to school pretty fully equipped. their brain develops and they can achieve their potential. in africa almost half the kids are so damaged by malnutrition

with democrats and republicans in congress to put the budget on a path to balance and saved defense. i think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts, we can't lose those spending cuts. and don't for get one other thing. i wrote legislation and passed it in the house twice to replace those sequesters with cuts in other areas of government. we have shown how to protect defense spending by cutting spending in other areas. in our budget last year, we did take money out of defense. just not nearly as much as the president seems to want to. but we think the sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and offered no alternatives. >> is this worth shutting the government down over? >> no one is talking about shutting the government down. >> well, it's a piece of the leverage that conservatives have. you didn't want to fight over the debt ceiling because you thought you can't do tha you have to pay the government's bills. do you think this fight over priority is worth shutting the government down? >> we'r
not carry over here. >> let me ask each of you about the cut-backs on defense. this seems crucial to me. i don't know if you saw the "wall street journal" had an op-ed saying why the french can't fight. provocative title and they backed it up with the facts that they pulled. they have a point of view but they note that the french are deploying into mali right now with barely half the vehicles that they had four years ago. there have been so many cut-backs in the french military. barney frank always used to tell me they're freeloading off the u.s. everyone freeloads off the u.s. military but if we start cutting back dramatically are we going to end up in a situation where we can't fight a traditional war, the only thing worse than having to be the country that bears the security risk for the whole world is not being able to do it? >> let me jump in here because quite frankly, that goes to the essence of why we have a government and our senior leadership as we discuss these fiscal cuts needs to get to the heart of why we have a government in the first place. if you go back to the preamble of
